Been staying at the Rose and Crown this week - in a sea of cookie cutter bland hotel suites, this experience is a bit different.
The room itself is serviceable- feeling like a cross between a church (with exposed wooden beams and random peaked chairs) & your Nan’s maisonette (see net curtains, box pelmets, skirts around the bed & dated floral motif soft furnishings).
Beyond the tv, there’s nothing modern about this room, & I for one find it amusing. The whole hotel is a bit higgilty piggilty, with its labyrinth layout, uneven floors and quaint woodwork.
What makes this a great experience is the staff - on check in, we joked with the receptionist about when she felt we earned the right to check in. The floor staff in the restaurant were chatty & the breakfast speedy & delicious.
It’s a warm feeling to be here. Is it bang up to date? No. Is it clean, friendly and uniquely British. 100% yes!
